FSS Pages Update Jun 26, 2005

Post by Tachyon » Sun Jun 26, 2005 11:27 pm

4 new mortar headd profiles today. Thanks, Nu Soard! Full info can be found on the Updates Page.

I invite everyone to look them over and see if I've made any mistakes editing Nu Soard's profiles.

I also finally got around to grabbing some line art images I had on my shelf.

I edited the format of the info found in the Neptune profile to match the Prominence profile. I hope I didn't botch anything up.

WOW! Good stuff again Tachy.

I'm no FSS buff so I can't add or detract anything but they are good informative pages!

Hmm...we already have profiles for 35 MH's up! I didn't know we had so many done already.

Next up are the Mighty Series and Engage Series. Most likely by the middle of the week (I am still job hunting though, so no promises...I have two interviews to go on Monday)

I just wish we had more detail on the various Non-AKD MH's. The LED and Jagd are just so well detailed, and the other MH's seemed to be merely glossed over...

Tachyon and Nu Soard, thanks for the hardwork!! ;)

regarding the description for MH Neptune, i noticed a slight problem. Neptune wasn't protecting Christine from Triton, it was protecting Christine from the group of guards. If u noticed the "dividing line" is drawn behind Triton, separating Christine, Triton and the "elders" from the group of knights.

Reason is, Triton is not gonna capture or harm Christine - in fact he was acting under orders of Ena to protect Christine. Triton only wants to take Christine away as quickly as possible, thus risking the confrontation with Hitosai. However, the group of knights are coming to capture Christine, so that is why Neptune reacts to keep this group away.
Looking for:

Looks great!
Very impressive.
I don't think there is a single public site that has this much quality and this much information.

But about the Arcana Knights,
Are they actually called "Knight of Spade" "Knight of Heart" ect in the book?
I didn't realize they actually had titles like that.

The Arcana name comes from Tarot cards.
22 big name cards like the Fool, the Emperor, the Tower etc are called the Major Arcana.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Rubel, I'll make that minor correction to the Neptune page when I get time this week.

hitori, the spelling I saw was "Arcanna." Is that correct? I saw it in the Japanese edition of Knight Flags and in the back pages of one of the English issues (21 - 23).

Ah, I just mentioned that as a trivia type info.
They are not directly related.
So the correct spelling as far as the FSS materials is concerned is Arcanna.

Tarot cards have Major Arcana, which I mentioned before, and the Minor Arcana.
Minor is the one that's developed in to what we consider a deck of playing cards.
There are four suits and 14 cards each in the minor arcana.
The suits are Wands, Cups, Swords, Pentacles - which changed to the four we know now.
The fourteen cards are 1~10, Page, Knight, Queen, King.

In the modern playing card deck, the Knight is omitted, making a suit 13 cards.

So, the missing Knight cards could be considered the Arcana Knights. ;)

I agree. Its sad that FSS doesn't get the attention it deserves in the net.

Actually, I don't know if Nagano ever referrs to them as such. I mentioned this as a guide to "newbies" so they can place who is who ("who's the guy with the Heart? Oh, thats Brleno Canzian!) and who pilots which machine.

Just one little thing, this picture :
http://www.gearsonline.net/fss/mh/sirens/sirena2.gif
Is it considered to be a Siren A ? (or B C D)
Cuz it has the bulkiness of the Siren E Arcanna.

So it could either be a sort of heavy siren D, or an earlier siren E design.

Isn't that one of the sketches that never made it into the actual manga?

If so, it's probably an early concept of what later became the Alkana.

Not sure.

Myself, I think its an early version of the Arcanna Siren. Very early, considering that illustration showed up in Newtype back in 1992!

But it also could've been the original concept of the Siren A, that later became the Arcanna Siren. You know how Nagano is...

Should we place the image differently? I could drop it down a line on the Siren A page and call it "Production Sketch" or something.

Ah! That reminds me. There's a black and white sketch of the Terror Mirage that I forgot to scan.

I don't think its a big deal.

It looks like a Siren A, but is as bulky as the Siren E. It actually looks like an in-between version of both models.

I really like the big/bulky designs in FSS...

It would have been really nice to see this guy become a polished/finalized design that actually got used in the manga.
